Happy New Year Emily!
Gotta say 2022 has already hit me hard!!
Right outta the gates, I got the Covid. I was lucky, it was mild. But in my diligence not to spread it, I self quarantined for 14 days, and.... severely dehydrated and gave myself a kidney stone! OUCH! I do NOT recommend that AT ALL!
I'm fine now, and grateful to everyone who reached out in support. 💚🤗 Once again, I called on my Yoga roots to help me get through it. I am sharing ways to manage the symptoms of Covid on my fb group the bZen Health Club. So if you're interested check it out. (link below)
SOO, I'm late to the party!! AND..... Yoga teaches us to Begin Again ...and again... and again... and again. Life isn't always going to go how you think it will, and you need to be prepared to start over! Again. It reminds me of the story of Thomas Edison, who despite not quite being the man of integrity we had hoped, offered us some insight. And outsight. Literally! In his journal, he noted that it took over 1,000 times to create a functional lightbulb! 1,000 TIMES!!! How many times would you have tried? I'd probably give it a good 5 or 6 tries, before I decided it was a stupid idea and who wants to see at night anyway?? 🤦♀️ But thanks to his diligence 💡, beginning again and again 1kX, that we have all these awesome lights! Think about it next time you flip the switch. We are called to BEGIN AGAIN over and over, as many times as it takes! So I'm doing a take 2 on starting this year! Lol. Maybe you should too!
Here's a lovely Meditation you can join me for. It's from ancient Hawaiian legend, called
the Bowl of Light. Use this as a way to put down all the challenges from last year, so you can start over again, a little bit lighter.
And know that it's not too late, you're not too old or young, or rich or poor, or TOO BUSY!! Bright lights take time. Begin. Again.
